Working With View New Posts

Victoria, I do think you've solved it, and it makes sense. Remembering that hitting the Back button takes you to the page that is already cached, and clicking a link gives you a new page. (Not just for this, but for anything on the web.)

The first is that there may be a cookie from our former board that's confusing your browser. To solve this, log out, clear out all your cookies (that's different for each prowser. If you need help on clearing cookies, check the Help file in your browser.)
Another option might be to get used to using My Assistant (top right of the board). When you open it, it will tell you how many POSTS there have been since your last visit (not just threads) and how many are on threads you've responded to, a nice little feature. It also has a clickable link that gives you a new topics list, and this stays open in a separate window. (If the window goes behind the main screen, it's easy to get it back; look on your task bar.) This way you have the View New Topics list until you've worked your way through them.

[snip -- I answered a question in a PM; at]
Am I able to go somewhere to bring up all MY posts?

My problem is that sometimes, a thread or two with new posts does not come up. Today, for instance, I checked the board several times at the office, then just now at home, and discovered a thread, started this morning, that did not show up under VNP at any time today.
This has happened 3 or 4 times since the change to Invision.

One thing that occurred to me -- is it skipping topics that were posted while you were on the board? It doesn't do email notifications of replies to topics when you're on the board, and I wondered if that was what was going on. (Not a pleasant feature, but one I'm sure we can't change.)

This morning's VNP revealed to me the "Reading & Teaching History Today" thread -- started yesterday morning -- for the first time. I checked the board 4 or 5 times yesterday and it never showed up. As far as new topics starting when I'm on the board, I always Refresh my VNP before I leave, to avoid just that.

Also, could you post your browser and operating system? (Netscape 6.1, Mac, etc.)

however, since the new threads DID eventually show up, i just decided not to stress about it! :shrug:
i cannot say this has happened recently, as i have spent hardly any time on the board over the last week.

The tech people looked at it -- they continiue to be wonderful -- and said this had been caused by some tiny thing going wrong during the conversion and they fixed it. If it happens again, please let me know.
